Election MMDCCLXII (Nova Roma)/Equestria Iunia Laeca
Equestria Iunia Laeca candidata praetrix Marca Hortensia Maior candidata praetrix Quiritibus salutem plurimam dicit
We stand before you today to present ourselves as a joined candidacy for the praetura.
I, Equestria Iunia Laeca, reside in Provincia Nova Britannia and have been a citizen since 2755 auc (2002 CE). Currently, I serve as Nova Roma's Chief Financial Officer et Curatrix Aerarii, Senatrix, and Legata Regio Connecticut. I have previously served as Accensa L. Arminio Ti. Galerio cos; Consularis Quaestrix M. Moravio T. Iulio cos; Praefectus and Scriba Propraetoris.
I, Marca Hortensia Maior, reside in Provincia Am. Austrorientalis. Since becoming a citizen in 2756 auc (2003 CE), I have served twice as scriba Censoris K. Fabius Buteo Quintilianus et K. Fabius Buteo Modianus, Propraetrix of Hibernia, Tribune, Aedilis Plebis, Quaestrix P. Memmius Albucius, Lictrix, and currently, as Senatrix. I am also very active within the Religio Romana, serving in the capacity of both Sacerdos Mentis and Flaminica Carmentalis.
We have worked harmoniously on many occasions in the past, and have formed a mutual respect for each other's diligence, legal competency, and analytical abilities. Individually, we each possess the skills and experience necessary to perform the requisite duties of the praetura. However, by making practical use of each other's strengths and talents, we combine into an even stronger, more efficient and effective team.
For example, Laeca's quiet tenacity is the balance for Maior's passionate debates. Laeca's ability as CFO, her righting Nova Roma's financial accounts, and her defending us against lawsuit threats is matched by Maior's long and varied experience as a magistrate.
We have long term excellent relationships with K. Fabius Buteo Quintilianus et P. Memmius Albucius; T. Iulius Sabinus; M. Valeria Messallina and other distinguished, dedicated citizens including future Tribunes, M. Moravius Piscinus, C. Curius Saturninus, M. Octavius Corvus, C. Aquillius Rota and C. Petronius Dexter. This provides the cooperative teamwork required for a strong unified Nova Roma that can work effectively and productively without constant argument. We are preparing plans for a joint shared cohors, as this makes for efficient and good governance.
The fora will be maintained in a fair and consistent manner so that they remain civil and friendly places where everyone feels comfortable to contribute and learn. As the center of our community, the main forum will not be allowed to degenerate into an unfriendly or even hostile atmosphere, regardless of the topic being discussed.
We both possess real knowledge of both macro and roman law acquired not only from our academic and professional lives, but also our extensive experience working within Nova Roma. We have both gladly given our time and focused our efforts on preserving and protecting Nova Roma from external legal challenges, as well as those within the res publica. We are doers; both in the macro world and in Nova Roma. Our record for our activity and results speak for themselves.
If elected praetrices, we will perform our duties to the best of our abilities, both individually and as a team, in service to the citizens of Nova Roma. We pledge peace, unity and respect; Vote for us; for Pax in Nova Roma. May Fortuna and the gods favour us; and protect Nova Roma!
